Abstract
OBJECTIVE
To evaluate the efficacy in the anatomical and functional outcome and the safety of uterosacral vaginal vault suspension and levator myorrhaphy surgery performed during vaginal hysterectomy for pelvic organ prolapse. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on the medical records of twenty-eight patients who underwent uterosacral vaginal vault suspension and levator myorrhaphy with the vaginal hysterectomy for pelvic organ prolapse. Anatomical outcomes based on pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POP-Q) system and urinary, bowel and sexual symptoms from Korean version of short form of pelvic floor distress inventory and pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence sexual questionnaire were assessed pre- and postoperatively. They were followed up for minimum a year. The recurrence was defined as any points of POP-Q system to be stage II or greater. RESULTS: A significant improvement of prolapse was observed from preoperative stage of III to postoperative stage of 0. The points of Ba, C, Bp were changed from 3.7 +/- 1.5, 2.5 +/- 1.2, -0.1 +/- 2.5 to -2.7 +/- 0.4, -6.2 +/- 0.9, -2.1 +/- 2.3. Intra-operative complications were 2 cases of ureter injury while stitching from uterosacral vaginal vault suspension surgery. Post-operative complications were 2 cases of urinary tract infection, 3 cases of voiding dysfunction and a case of urinary incontinence. No patient required reoperation for recurrent prolapse and urinary incontinence. CONCLUSION: Based on our operational result, uterosacral vaginal vault suspension and levator myorrhaphy surgery seem to provide safe and effective outcomes.
